in harrisburg, pennsylvania, this morning. that is where paul ryan will be later today. paul, good morning to you. i guess the question is, is pennsylvania really in play? >> that's what everybody is asking, randi. the last time a republican won pennsylvania in a presidential election? 1988. george herbert walker bush, it's been a while. but what's going on here? paul ryan, as you mentioned, he's coming right here to harrisbu harrisburg, that's why we're here. on the flip side, it seems that the obama campaign now putting some surrogates here. jill biden, the wife of the vice president will be here in pennsylvania later today, as well. guess what, former president bill clinton coming to pennsylvania to campaign on monday. you turn on the tvs here, randi, all you see are campaign commercials. i saw a ton in the local news. 10 million in the final days and the romney campaign is outspending the obama campaign two to one here in pennsylvania. 20 electoral votes at stake. here is the latest poll in pennsylvania. franklin and marshal, a four-point advantage for the president. very tight. that's
is expected by romney and ryan and the platform would declare the fertilized egg to be a person, and that means that women's bodies throughout our childbearing years would be under government control. but also remember that one in three american women has needed an abortion at some time in her life before she's 45. most of those women who have needed abortions are already mothers, so they absolutely understand that it's important that every child is born loved and wanted. and there are already 35 states in which young women have been deprived of those rights. so we understand it's on the edge. >> what about roe v. wade. mitt romney has said he would work toward overturning roe v. wade. do you truly think it's in danger? >> it's much more than that. it has already been eviscerated in those 35 states for young women, and also for poor women who are dependent on government health care. and the romney-ryan position goes around even the supreme court to support a constitutional amendment to declare the fertilized egg a person. so they could not possibly be more clear. and whether or
'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they now say they could. although if you look at the internals you see what you've been seeing all along. president obama is up with women about 12 points, mitt romney up with men by 8 points. romney has made some in roads in suburban areas, but in our poll, the president is up with independent voters by about 5 points. what romney needs to keep doing, to get the momentum or to continue a momentum that he had after the first debate is to get those voters out in the suburban areas, married women in particular, that could make the difference for him in the state of ohio, which is so key. but as for overall momentum, we're getting so many polls in every day, you talk to both campaigns and they say their tracking is the b
nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the
campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha
. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
am, mitt rom economy coming here tomorrow where i am and paul ryan coming here today. that's why we're here. listen, mitt romney thinks they can grab pennsylvania away from the democrat, a state the republicans haven't won since 9 1988. >> paul, thanks. randi. >>> new numbers on where things stand in florida. take a look here. this nbc news/"wall street journal/"marist poll. florida is the biggest of all the expected swing state with 29 electoral votes. >>> on the campaign trail in ohio former new york mayor rudy giuliani offered a scathing critique of the president and said president obama should resign. it happened at a rally for mitt romney yesterday. mr. giuliani slammed the administration on a lot of topics. benghazi, others. >> they're real excited today because unemployment didn't go back to 8%. ility 7.9%. they should be ashamed of themselves. the greatest country on earth, the greatest country in the history of the world and our growth is at 1.2%. he should resign! >> the founder and ceo of news corp rupert murdoch is also sounding off on the election via twitter. he blast
the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but governor romney would like that lead among older, more reliable, more republican voters to be a little bit bigger than 52-46. that's one thing he needs to work on. this is significant. like in michigan, the auto bailout plays big in ohio and look at this. you might say the president's only getting 41% of white men, 46% of white women. that's actually a good number. if the president can keep above 40% among whites overall and above 40% among white men, it's pretty much game over in the electorate. this is a statistic we will watch as we get closer to election day. if the president is above 40 among whites, especially above 40 among white men, in most states he would be well on his path to victory. you siee this more and more in industrial states affected by the auto bailout, the president runs stronger among white men. if that poll were to hold up, can governor romney get to 270 without ohio and how much easier is it for the president to get to 270 with ohio? let's start with the president. he's at 237 righ
and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. it's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> talk about a smackdown. yet despite christie -- some can't help but wonder will christie's newfound love for president obama tilt the election obama's way? talkback question for you, will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds are rescued in a northern new jersey town. we'll tell you how the city plans to rescue others who are still stranded t
of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line
mentioned wisconsin is the home state of his running mate paul ryan -- >> let me jump in, jim, because over your shoulder governor scott walker introducing mitt romney gave the roaring crowd what they wanted, and that was mitt romney who has just come out the greet some of the supporters behind him, and he is going to take to the lectern at any moment, and remind the viewers that at the very front of the auditorium there is a sign that says "jobs" and you can bet your bottom dollar that my colleague christine romans just mentioned he will be talk tact jobs talking about the jobs report when he has a chance to address the crowd. let's listen in. >> you guys are amazing. thank you so much. what a welcome. thank you. that is a very generous welcome. thank you. [ crowd chanting "four more days" ] >> thank you so much. you got that one right. you have that absolutely right. four more days. this is a -- wow, a great experience to be here with you today. this is so exciting. what a great state. what a great welcome and by the way, this state is going to help me to become the next president of the
over mitt romney in this latest poll, which is why mitt romney and paul ryan are stu stumping there today after modifying their plans. they were going to be in virginia, but because of the storm now they're in ohio. as you see here, the two rally supporters just a short time ago in salina, ohio. they have both spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on their calendar. let's talk a little more about the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both o
. hurry in, offer ends soon! i'm ryan isabell and i see food differently. >>> our second story outfront, sandy devastates staten island. that borough has seen some of the worst damage in new york. six people killed there. two residents died in the cottonville section when two homes completely ripped from their foundations. shelters and hospitals lost power at the height of the storm. michael grim, part of his district in staten island. on the phone from the brooklyn part of that district tonight. good to talk to you, congressman, certainly not under these circumstances, though. obviously, i know have you been on the ground much of the day visiting your district, talking to residents. how are things? >> people are devastated. obviously, we've had significant loss of life, which, you know, devastates a community. and, of course, the damage is much greater than anyone anticipated. it really is a surreal scene to see very large boats in the middle of your block, in front of your house, cars, displaced and on people's lawns that came in with the waves and homes literally being ripped right o
and 1 points over the summer and fall, but in a quinnipiac poll, he was only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it makes a lot of sense for this reason. now, it's true that ohio might be a tighter state, but the question is, r it's the marginal benefit. mitt romney spent a ton of time in ohio and if spending an additional few hours as we get closer to the election could make a big difference in pennsylvania given he has spent far less time in that state, that's what you've got to think about. real additional hours in ohio make that much of a difference there, where as in pennsylvania, it could be a difference in defeat. it's 20 electoral votes versus 20 in ohio. this could really scramble the map. >> i'm going to look at the map in a second, but first, paul, i want to go to you. mitt romney has put 2 million ads worth in penn

the couple i'm about to talk to had to get out on their own. on the phone with me now is ryan and girlfriend catherine. both of you, we're looking at a picture of here. i'm sure you're glad to be okay right now. but ryan, i know you're the one, you live in hoboken. can you first before you talk about how you got out, describe the floods and the smell. >> the water came about four or four and a half feet but it filled about 30 minutes before it reached that level. it was pretty -- it was pretty quick for the most part. i was just surprised at how fast it came. >> how fast? >> i'm sorry? >> how fast? >> within 20, 30 minutes there was about 3 1/2, 4 feet of water out in the street. luckily, you know, we were on a third floor apartment. so we just watched it but, you know, i've seen -- i've lived in hoboken for three years. it's rained, i saw pieces of irene and it was nothing compared to how quick the water came up. it was just like a basically wave that filled the back streets. >> and we are looking at the pictures, some of the video i know from our affiliates. catheri catherine, you sent us
at least one more time. paul ryan is here today. that says it all. both campaigns know that this is a very competitive state to the end. the suburbs are the key areas. make this point before i throw it back to you, 1.3 million people have already voted in the state of colorado. i talked to is the secretary of state today, he says that's probably about half of the electorate and says you can still vote until tomorrow. more than 50% of the votes will be cast before election day and they're already starting to count them. we were watching that process in downtown denver. >> are we getting any indication on how the independent voters are moving right now? >> reporter: it's a critical question because this state is roughly evenly divided between democrats, republicans, independents or unaffiliated voters. if you look at our poll, our poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you'
romney has the edge. guess who was in ohio last night. mitt romney. he was there with paul ryan at a big event. and i know you guys played sound from president obama on mtv, president obama was also reaching out to young voters. take a listen. >> if you're a college student looking to graduate sometime, maybe next spring, you know you've got, what, $10,000 or $20,000 worth of loans you've got to pay back. and you know how heavy a burden that might be if you did your calculation. but by the way, because of all the spending of this administration and prior administrations, you also have about $50,000 of government debt. yeah. and what's the president doing about that? why, he keeps on adding more and more and more debt. i don't understand how a college kid can vote for barack obama. >> reporter: i think it's safe to say president obama will disagree with those comments. it's a little windy right now, courtesy of tropical storm sandy, but no hit impacting us here in florida. mitt romney with three events in the state today. >> all righty. >> thank you very much, paul. >>> new this morning,
in our poll, those under 50, a big 18-point advantage for the obama-biden ticket over romney-ryan. this encouraging to the republicans, their leading among older voters, but they need the margin. governor romney would need that margin to be a little bit bigger than six points to expect to carry the margin. ohio, the auto bailout tends to help the president do better among white, working class voters. among white men, the president is over 40%. you might say well, he's getting beat. if the president is over 40% among white men in an central state like ohio, he's likely to carry the state. watch that number as we get closer to election day. if the president can stay above 40 among white men, he's likely going to win ohio. and then the question is if the president wins ohio, can governor romney defy history and win the white house? no republican has ever won without the state of ohio. so if you give this one to the president, the president could actually get over the top just by staying in the midwest. a win in wisconsin and a win in iowa, plus ohio changing nothing else in the map w
convention, right? and this is what he's doing. what would be nice for either paul ryan or mitt romney or some other large political figure within the republican party is to just do what barbara walters did which is to say, dude, stop it. you're embarrassing us, you're embarrassing the conversation, you're embarrassing the country and you need to stop it. instead, they're silenced. that silence bothers me. to me, it suggests that, it makes us uncomfortable but if it can get us votes, keep him around. people like him and ann coulter, we need to say, you need to go away because you're not part of the future that we want. >> we're going to have another segment on this and other outlandish things being said on the campaign trail. do you think more republicans should come out and say, please stop this, it's not productive? what do you think? >> i think the worst thing we could do for donald trump is not talk about him. i think that's what would hurt him the most. he was trying to help with mitt romney that, i don't think he achieved that. if he offers $5 million to charity and to self-depor
with vice presidential candidate paul ryan. and in florida, romney kept hammering home his message of a failed passed four years. >> he's asked what he's going do to get this economy going. we've had four debates, three presidential, one vice presidential. have you heard him lay out a plan yet as to what he's going to do to get this economy going? >> no! >> he wants four more years, but he's got no agenda. ♪ >> tonight want to let you know we'll bring you a special inside look at both these candidates. mitt romney revealed: family, faith, and the road to power. that's coming your way at 8:00 tonight eastern. and it will be followed by "obama revealed: the man, the president." you will get to see both candidates behind the scenes like never before tonight on cnn. >>> quite a scare for the family of florida republican senator marco rubio. while the senator was out campaigning with mitt romney, his daughter was involved in an accident involving a golf cart. she is 12 years old. she's amanda rubio. apparently she was visiting classmates had this accident happened. we're told she suff

"the times" writes that mr. obama has impressive achievements despite the implaquable wall of refusal provided by congressional republicans so intent on stopping him they risked pushing the nation into depression, held its credit rating hostage, and hobbled economic recovery." mo

for granted. they've learned from the past and as you know this is the home state of paul ryan. precious time to be expending on a traditional blue state at the end. the president is cross crossing the nation going is from ohio to virginia to florida to colorado back and forth across the battleground states in the final hours. and part of the message is countering the message you hear from romney. governor romney says he will bring big change, the president arguing he is the only one who can carry that banner. listen to this. >> you may not agree with every decision i've made. sometimes you may have been frustrated by the pace of change. but, you know where i stand. you know what i believe. you know i mean what i say and i say what i mean. >> and wolf, part of his argument there as well as he's an honest person that voters can trust. something interesting i'll tell you, you might be able to tell over my shoulder, a comparatively small crowd here. they've been mixing it up. the one in wisconsin 20,000 people, according to law enforcement officials there. this one significantly smaller. where e
romney in wisconsin and congressman ryan in melbourne, and lakeland, florida. we are also cancelling all events currently scheduled for both governor romney and congressman ryan on tuesday. governor romney believes this is a time for the nation and its leaders to come together to focus on those americans who are in harm's way. we will provide additional details regarding their schedules when they are available. so at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to
. governor romney, together with paul ryan has put forward an economic recompry plan consisting of five central elements that will in four years create 12 million jobs. as you know, there are many people who take exception to that. he goes on to list those five elements. i'll do them in a nutshell, achieve north american energy independence, retrain the workforce for jobs now, make trade work for america, restore fiscal sanity, we'll champion small business. can this, in fact, in four years, you believe, decree aeight 12 million jobs? and i'll warn you, ali velshi is going to say no possible way. go ahead. >> well, we don't have to guess. we can look when ronald reagan had a recession, which had double digit inflation, 20% interest rate, in many ways much more devastating, higher unemployment, much more devastating than the one that obama has, when you went out three years plus, the same length of time that obama's had since we've been in technical recovery, the economy grew 20%. obama has grown 7%. a third the strength of reagan's. job creation much higher under reagan. what did reagan
and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >> we are going dig deeper into that later. gloves are off on the campaign trail. let's take a listen. >> in the closing weeks of the campaign, romney is using his talents as a salesman to dress up the very same policies that failed our country so badly. the same policies we have been cleaning up after these past four years and offering them up as change. >> a lot of people are hurting. they don't want to see another four years like the last four. do you want to see four more years with 23 americans struggling for good jobs? >> no! >> he took a break because of superstorm sandy, but now there's a lot of rhetoric. >> here is one reason why. take a look at this. the race is extremely tight right now. here is the national cnn poll. the survey is out over the last week and a half. average them together. it's as close as you can get. look at these numbers, colorado is one of the eight battleground states. a very, very close contest.
its campaigning, paul ryan and mitt romney to ohio over the next couple of days, but there too, they might find themselves in the middle of a whole lot of snow, while that's expected there, while the east coast deals with a lot of wind, rain -- momentarily, maybe about six minutes or so away, we understand the new york mayor of michael bloomberg is expected to have a press conference about the preparations that are under way there. >> let's go to josh levs. >> as we talk about so many moves parts. we're also going to be hearing from the governors of massachusetts and pennsylvania and we'll be bringing you the information that's coming in. everyone you're seeing is in engaged in the process of making calls, reaching out, finding out everything you need to know about what's happening with this storm. i will tell you when i was on with you earlier this hour, we were talking about flight cancellations. we have just gotten another piece of information on that, we are hearing that united airlines has now cancelled about 3,700 flights. we'll keep updating that for you as the time goes
a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it because of how this storm could put a damper on early voting. that has according to conventional wisdom been an advantage for the president. we'll have to see how this shakes out. just in the last hour, one campaign event canceled by the president and both campaigns have said, don, they're looking -- they're working
campaigning in ohio, he and paul ryan. at all three stops there, mitt romney was talking about the stops and his prayers for people in harm's way. take a listen. >> i know that right now, some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm, about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way. >> reporter: romney today's got an event coming up in a few minutes in ohio. then it's on to iowa and then on to wisconsin as well. but his campaign is doing stuff to help people out back on the east coast, people being affected. andrea saul said in north carolina, new hampshire, pennsylvania and virginia, we'll be collecting supplies at our victory offices to deliver local storm relief. in virginia, we are loading storm relief supplies onto the romney bus to be delivered. it's not the same as going to a fema news conference like the president is doing. but romney is trying to do his part. >> cnn's political editor, paul steinhauser, for us live, thank you very much. for more on today's campaigning and how the storm is changing tho

news cycle without going too far. and that's a very tricky place for him to be in. >> ryan, it's very difficult place for him to be in. i mean, you have to applaud someone like chris christie who is going to come out -- you know the man says what he thinks. he said what he thought. >> we also know chris christie is running for re-election in 2013 and we also know new jersey is a state with a lot of democrats, a lot more democrats than republicans. and so it's really important that chris christie project he is a bipartisan, compromiser -- and willing to work with the democratic president and not going to shoot the guy down in the middle of something as big as a crisis as this. i think that chris christie is very shrewd, that he was telling the truth. and i also think he needs to project that he is more than just a partisan figure in a state like new jersey. >> that's an interesting point. let me ask you this, though. because during a few primary debates, fema had come up, obviously now fronts and center, and so now front and center ando far appearing to do fine and getting fine reviews
